Jakarta is a huge, sprawling metropolis, home to over 10 million people. Indonesia’s capital, located on the northwest coast of the island of Java, is the most modern city in Indonesia and a wonderfully eclectic mix of cultures: Javanese, Malay, Chinese, Arab, Indian and European.
Why exhibit there?
It is notoriously tricky to conduct business in Indonesia because of the necessary permits and licenses required- obtaining these can become a time-consuming and expensive affair, but essential to doing business.
Indonesia however is rich in natural commodities such as coal, gold and gas and whilst it still has some political, cultural and social issues to work through, it is a promising country to do business in.
Jakarta has two international airports and it’s recommended the best way to travel around is by taxi. Be prepared, though, to meet traffic jams.
It is advisable also to choose a hotel near the location where you will have your meeting or business appointments.
Restrictions on what you can bring into the country
You’re not allowed to bring in narcotics, pornographic materials, chinese printing and medicines nor transceivers and cordless telephones.
